The guitar top is the part of the instrument that most affects the sound. It is also the most delicate part of any high quality acoustic guitar. The grade and thickness of the wood used, as well as the bracing structure, have a huge impact on the instruments sound. The idea of applying an arch or curve to the top is appealing because the added strength of an arched top should allow for the use of a thinner and more lightly braced top. This is why Dean Guitars takes the care it does when making every guitar in its line.
